How can I get the data-widget-id of my twitter timeline widget?



I have 2 twitter accounts.
For the CMS I’m using, I only need the data-widget-id so that it will appears on my website.
The developpers of my organization have set this so that we can easily add a twitter widget on our website (and of course especially to avoid any users to touch the website code).

For one twitter account (la_CSC), the twitter timeline widget was created (not by me) 2 or 3 years ago. And there I have the data-widget-id (see below):

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="" data-widget-id="525217840249315328">Tweets de @La_CSC</a>
<script>!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?'http':'https';if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);;js.src=p+"://";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs");</script>


Now for my other twitter account (hetCOV) I need to create the same kind of widget so that I can get this data-widget-id! But when I click on “create new” in the widget section, I land on this page:
On this page I see just the embed code but I don’t see how to really create a widget! (there is no actual button “create your widget”)

<a class="twitter-timeline" href="">Tweets by hetCOV</a> <script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

There is no data-widget-id in this code…
Could someone please help me on this issue?
Thank you and best regards


We have moved away from requiring widget IDs. Our new portal enables you to simply paste in what you want (either a single Tweet URL, or a username, list, timeline etc) and then click to generate the embed code you can use in your site directly.
